Lynda Carter, the actress who brought the Amazonian superheroine to life on the small screen, has booked a recurring role on Supergirl, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
Carter will play the president of the United States and recur on the sophomore season of the CBS-turned-CW drama starring Melissa Benoist. She will first appear in episode three of season two.
Producers Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg told reporters last season that scoring Carter to play the president in season two was their dream casting for the part. The duo noted that they first envisioned Carter's president for a role in season one, though her schedule did not work out. "We're going to do it, we'll just do it next year," Kreisberg said.
This is brilliant!! Wonder Woman for POTUS!!
Though, I wonder if she will fill some of the leadership / mentor gaps if Calista is around less often.
Anyway, I think this is awesome! I recently watched all 3 seasons of Wonder Woman on METV, so I am totally looking forward to this! (And I saw in a comment somewhere, "how long till someone jokes that Air Force One should be invisible".)
